this space for news. >>> here's the background, when george w. bush picked harriet mier meyers, he was showing trademark loyalty. he was also particularly happy to have found a woman he trusted for that job since the seat she was going to be filling on the court would be the one vacated by the retiring justice sandra day o'connor. now the harriet miers nomination didn't work out. outside conservative groups had weighed in against the bush administration and told them that harriet myers was not right wing enough for the court and the bush administration caved and decided to take back the president's choice that is how it seemed at the time, how it was reported in the time. but in peter baker's new book "days of fire," he reports that story, the way it actually happened is not at all the way it reported. the bush administration knew those groups weren't going to be happy when they picked harriet m miers. it could be a show of strength against people on their own side who might try to bully then on an important issue. now, the real reason that harriet miers nomination fell apart becau
for a non-tea party strategy is taking a page from george w. bush's playbook trying to prove electability to national republican donors and republicans across the country and hope he ends up on wednesday morning the front runner of the establishment wing for 2016. the campaign is not hiding the message. look at the release called blue jersey. in the overwhelming democratic garden state, no republican candidate has earned higher than 50% of the vote in 28 years. >> for the republican party that lost last year in the presidential election, for the republican party that lost seats in the u.s. senate, for the republican party that has been disspirited for the last number of months, we need to show the republican party in america that we can win again. guess where they will be watching on tuesday night to see if we win. right here in new jersey. they will be watching us. >> christie is aiming for the widest margin of victory. he racked up a 750,000 vote margin and carried every one of the counties. virginia and new jersey usually vote together. if christie wins and cuccinelli loses, it will be
republican, neither is george w. bush. dick cheney on foreign policy is exact opposite what tea party republicans feel. they have a much more isolationist might be too strong but certainly more of a restrained view of american role in the world and cheney believes in a very robust national security out there. they are on such opposite sides. even on other issues. cheney obviously is an economic conservative. he also said in some of these meetings deficits don't matter. he was strong as deficit hawk. i think this is a new kind of tea party. he's trying to adapt himself to it. he agrees with some of the things they say about obama care and current administration. his daughter is obviously running for senate in wyoming. >> ezra. >> in terms of the party cheney wielded inside the bush white house, one way the book is portrayed is george w. bush was in charge. the impression i've taken from it so far was actually that cheney was very, very good at being publicly subservient, sub missive but he was an incredibly good staffer. he understood how power worked in the white house, key roles. he
said that's inconsistent with our priv is see laws. and they feel that starting with george w. bush and continuing under obama, the united states has simply got the balance wrong. too much invasion of privacy in the pursuit of security. >> when ask youed about whether they handle their information differently, i would say that no country in the world that i know of and certainly not even the european countries has the kind of really intrusive oversight that we have here. and i support that. nor does anyone have the sort of guarantees and protections against invasion of privacy that we have here. i mean many of these countries and there are exceptions among them aren't nearly as faithful to those ideas as we are. >> ifill: is isn't the only reason we are talking about this now is there seems to have been an invisible line, well, not just that it's been reported, but that we're talking about world leaders. dianne feinstein came out this afternoon and said this is something we should not be doing, which is spying or listening in on what world leaders and prime ministers are doing. is t
. a former deputy attorney general during the george w. bush administration. live coverage when it gets underway here on c-span. while we wait for that to get underway, a discussion from this morning's "washington journal." >> joining us to continue on a discussion about the health care law. joining us for the discussion, senior health correspondent. welcome. >> what is the latest? but unfortunately the sub contractors that runs the data hub had an outage last night. it was still down this morning. i checked before i arrived. yet another woe in the long saga that has dogged the website. there was a congressional hearing last night. they recommended more testing earlier. talked about how federal officials decided to turn off of browsing function that required a double make accounts. that created a backlog. a lot of attention and focus on the website. www.c-span.orghost: you get the homepage and then i was able to set up an account. i will give that a try. got a message the website was down. >> the smiling girl on the website, a story about that now missing as well. >> she is gone and hav
war was getting underway if democrat who opposed the war, weren't crazy about george w. bush to begin with began denying troops body armor or denying them armored vehicles or things like that. that's the equivalent to what republicans are doing to the health care bill with not expanding medicaid, leaving millions of people to suffer without health insurance. just because of their ideology. >> i don't want to defend all of it, but when they start talking about how the president oversold the ease of which it will come in, weren't they the guys who called the iraq war a cakewalk? just to remind people. what real oversales is about. >> one of the most important points i think todd makes in his excellent piece in politico is that the way this town used to work is that when a bill was passed, a big bill, a big program, you knew it would need tweaking along the way. you know, there were unintended consequences. sometimes you see what happens with regulations and tax code stuff. you have to go back in and make what are called technical fixes. back in the days of tip and gipper, maybe if you l
. most of those were under george w. bush. we've had 18 congressional hearings and 25,000 administration documents produced, no evidence of wrongdoing by the president, by secretary clinton. even republican senator bob corker said months ago, we know what happened in benghazi. he's satisfied that he knows it. so, in this report, i mean, i'll say something about two of the sources in the report. one of them, gregory hicks, was presented as a so-called whistleblower by darrell issa, and you know, he previously lied and said that there was a military standdown order in benghazi. that never happened, didn't stop fox news from airing 85 prime time segments saying there was one, but all the testimony from the military officials said that never happened. and the other witness appears to be some type of british mercenary who, apparently, in conversations with fox news, asked for money to talk. and so, you know, fox news even drew a line there, but it was good enough for cbs. >> david brock from "media matters," thank you very much for your time. >> thanks. >> joining me, former governor of minne
's political heart keeps beating. >> ladies and gentlemen, theth president of the united states, george w. bush. >> i appreciate you coming out here to the airport. we were just flying in from latin america. when you find a man who's got this kind of character, it makes sense to stop short of the destination and come in and say to the people in this state, put him in office and he'll be proud of the job he'll do for you. >> but in the end, kilgore was trounced. >> this showed that the president's policies in red states are drawing extreme concern. >> republicans eyeing next year's midterm elections are nervous. unlike 2002, when the president was a top draw for congressional candidates, now mr. bush's troubles have left republicans looking for distance. >> reporter: and republicans had reason to be nervous. in the next two election cycles in 2006 and 2008, democrats swept to power, first taking the house and then the whole shebang. and eight years later, it is now obama who heads to virginia with his lowest approval ratings yesterday, campaigning for terry mcauliffe, the race that the republica
republicans are going to do right now to this president what democrat did to george w. bush about the same point. not only raise the credibility question but competence question. >> i want to talk more about that in our next block. but just on obama care, i guess one benefit for the administration it certainly knocked off the front page all the messups with the web site. this is not really the way you want to go about it. >> that's not a good thing. i think it's a problem to conflate all these things together. these are really separate issues. but if the boss is going out and over and over saying something that somebody in administration knows not to be true, that's a very different animal. and i think at that point, absolutely someone has to step forward and say, hey, you know, you keep saying this one thing. [ overlapping speakers ] >> one at a time. >> his staff is keeping him in a bubble of ignorant bliss? >> i don't believe it. >> or they're claiming to be keeping him in a bubble of ignorant bliss. neither of the two are good. >> andrew you're saying? >> i would just love politics tha
the president informed. look at the famous picture of andy card on 9/11 whispering in george w. bush's ear immediately to let them know there was a plane crash in one of the world trade center. that's what a good chief of staff does. >> david, one more question, supporters see president obama as cool and collected. critics say he is aloof and out of touch. do you think his personality helped or hurt his presidency? >> i think his personality has not been a good fit with the presidency, i must say. in fairness, let's put one proposition on the table. seven presidents tried to get universal health care passed. mack and i were there with president clinton. seven failed. president obama came along. he is the first in history to get it passed. you have to give him credit, legislatively, for a big milestone. but the execution has been lousy. as andy card pointed out, we were grossly misled as a country and the passage of that bill might have been threatened if they told us straight that 10 million people would lose their health care policies and were assured they would not. >> david, many americ
deeming it unconstitutional. the judge appointed by george w. bush blocked texas from enforcing restriction that would have required doctors performing abortions to have admitting privileges at a nearby hospital. had the requirement gone into effect it could force clinics to close. the act is without a rational basis, the judge wrote and places a substantial obstacle in the path of a woman seeking an abortion. "new york times" hailed the judge's decision as a victory for reproductive rights. if it was a victory, it was a lopsided one. in the judge's ruling he also let stand a provision that restricts choice by requiring doctors to use a specific drug protocol and medication, the medication-induced abortions. a protocol doctors and medical experts and american college of object descriptions and gynecologists updated. texas announced they would appeal the decision and would go to the staunchly conservative fifth court of appeals. according to "the new york times" even the judge acknowledged the limits of his ruling. quote, at the end of the day, these issues are going to be decide
on any clinton campaign. in new jersey, chris christie is channelling george w. bush, the version from 1998 using reelection and hoping to use it to show electability and distance himself from unpopular house republicans. with christie next to line to take over the governor's association, they have been crisscrossing the country almost immediately, touting and perfecting his anti-washington message. let's bring in michelle bernard, president of the women for politics. and jackie. jackie, normally these first of the off, off year elections are the canary in the coal mine about what the climate could be for the following year and i think in many ways there's going to be a couple of lessons and on that front it's going to be, hey, look, tea party type republicans don't win. nontea party type republicans win. that's going to be the overgeneralization as far as the republican party is concerned, but there is 2016. there's a lot more to it than 2014. >> oh, yeah. if as we expect terry mcauliffe gets elected governor of virginia, we'll break that trend where usually a member of the party that
president attended a world series game. president george w. bush threw out the first pitch of the world series game in new york. an amazing strike pitch at that time. congratulations to today's winner ben goodman. the yankees lost that world series in fenway. send your guesses to we'll be right back. >>> on this halloween our new poll shows that october has been a pretty scary month for everyone in washington, but one of the president's longtime advisers says the white house doesn't need to be fearful just yet. >> chuck, when you've been around long enough you've been through ups and downs. i went through the oil leak when people were saying this is obama's katrina and what you learn is what the poll proves again. if you have a couple of horrendous weeks the numbers will go down and the question is what do you do? one, they have to get the website going and quickly and the other is i think the president, i know the president is very much knocking heads around that building. i think people need to see some of that in public. they need to see some energy and edge that i'm sure
pursued politics. and then george w. bush. >> host: in the family, you write for those who study the fault line, the campaign of 1980 is instructive. because to dynastic sons chose to challenge their party's front runners and those two presumptive heirs base their candidacies solely on their sense of entitlement. >> guest: i am fascinated, not just by the study of power, but i am fascinated by the class system in this country. it isn't quite what it is in the united kingdom. it is more unspoken here. we don't night people. we don't place the earls here, the barringer, the dukes. no, but we do. and that kind of upper class, middle class, lower class permeates our society and it fascinates me. it's a form of self entitlement and it's a form of discrimination. and i like to see -- not that i like what i'm fascinated to see how it plays out. >> host: in the family you write that the legacy of prescott alcoholism became his destructive to the dynasty as denying its existence was to his immediate failure. prescott bush alcoholic? >> guest: and his son, jonathan bush, took umbrage when this book
eight years to 2005 when george w. bush was president and there are a number of nominees to the court that democrats were objecting to, very conservative nominees and there was a big stand still there. there is ultimately a compromise in those judges were confirmed, do we expect that it is going to end up where there will be a compromise here? >> well, that's the issue, i think that for the republican party, right? coming off the shutdown that we just had, the whole government shutdown issue, the republican party took a lot of hits for being obstructionists and unreasonable, and i think the white house and democrats can portray this as another round of that. it will be tough for the republicans. the republicans on their hand, they think this is a -- this is where you draw the ideological lines. these fights for these judges are where a lot of the social battles happen, as you're talking about with the birth control things, things like that. you get the judges in there, that's where you do the actual social conservatism you want to do on the judge level. they try to put those guys in t
to be there. >> true. >> except george w. bush, make no mistake, he wants to be in texas watching espn. it's kind of cute. i kind of like that. >> to go back again for eight more years, that's a lot on the system. it really is. some might want to. >> what do you do, move to boca. no, go to the white house and change the world. >>> coming up on "morning joe" -- in doses. coming up on "morning joe," the moderator of "meet the press," david gregory, white house press secretary, jay carney, leigh gallagher and later, celebrity chef rocco dispirito. >> are you going to put on an apron and cook? >> yeah, i'm going to put on an apron and say mmm delicious. top stories from the politico playbook. bill karins is up now. >> as far as my forecast goes for today, if you are going to be traveling in the northeast, the airports are going to be a big issue especially this morning. we have strong thunderstorms with high winds that are going to blow through the big cities. as far as right now, they are located in central pennsylvania on interstate 81. they are going to head into the big city. not even ligh
that george w. bush was at 1600 pennsylvania avenue. more than half of more than half of our debt can be traced to the failed war in iraq, totally unjustified in search of weapons of mass destruction that still haven't found.und and never will the debt can be tied to the war in afghanistan, the fact that it was misprosecuted as a result of being distracted by the joyride that took place in iraq costing lives in american treasure. the debt problem can be traced to the bush tax cuts passed in this congress in 2001 and 2003, without being paid for. and then, of course, the attitude towards wall street resulting in reckless behavior by some that collapsed the economy, robbed mills and mills of americans -- millions and millions of americans and the resulting bailout that took place and the need for an economic stimulus package through the recovery act, all of that accounts for a significant amount of the debt that we now confront. so now when both sides sit down at the negotiating table in the context of the budget committee, facts, d do so with objectively established as opposed to putti
suggests that george w. bush tapped the phones of world leaders? >> when did this start? >> four or five years ago. >> 2002. >> 2002. >> the tapping of foreign leaders. >> yes. so you have to apply the same questions to president bush, first of all, whether they do or do not know. i think barnacle brought up the biggest point and that is the nsa overreaching in its power, is this something people want done but they don't want to hear about it. you got to look at that part of it too because we can apply this to a couple of different issues that we complained about or argued about on our set about the conduct of the bush administration. but i would say that most importantly, the important disconnect that i think is happening in this story is that people are thinking that like someone is sitting there listening to her conversations. the phone calls are being monitored. that's different than tapping the phone. >> this is gene. i did write about it this morning. >> i was reading that. >> that the nsa is out of control. >> yes. >> some of us do think the nsa is out of control and some of us th
. everybody has forgotten, by the way, that when president george w. bush, a republican, put that medicare part d drug program in, it was more unpopular than the health care law and they had terrible problems with the computers. >> congresswoman, it was eight years ago that the federal government rolled out medicare part d, a prescription drug benefit, and it was the first time that medicare was launching into this exclusive private health insurance plan. only 21% of americans at that time had a favorable understanding of what medicare part d was and now people would think they couldn't live without it. without proper enhancements as we live and learn. so do you think as we stand right now with the fact that the president was re-elected on obama care and it passed both houses and also vetted through the supreme court, do you believe that all americans deserve access to affordable health care? >> absolutely every american should have access to affordable health care. every american should be able to provide that for their families. but you know when we're comparing medicare part d to this m
. everybody's forgotten when president george w. bush, a republican, put that medicare part d drug program in, it was more unpopular than the health care law and they had terrible problems with the computers. our side is not so ideological. instead of bashing and scream being how incompetent they were, we tried to help people understand the law and make it work. >> clinton begins another marathon day today at 10:15 in norfolk. democrats sweep the state in virginia and republicans get clobbered and it sends a real message to the state of the republican party and if republicans write that off, they do so at their own peril. democrats tried the same ignoring the signs that became the 2010 republican wave starting this virginia in 2009. so far president obama is yet to do a campaign event that was supposed to happen in the shut down, but shut down got in the way. could happen this weekend. hillary clinton will be raising money this week in california. kentucky senator rand paul will speak for ken cuccinelli. he has a libertarian on the ballot and this man in virginia is taking votes from cuccinel
, and be quiet. mark thiessen is a former speech writer for president george w. bush. now a vast majority can keep it and for the pesky 5% that keep complaining, just enjoy obama care. why do you keep complaining? >> the vast majority. he didn't say the vast majority in 2009. he said if you like your plan, you get to keep it, no matter what, period. this wu an exercise in dishonesty and revisionist history. do you remember george w. bush's famous 16 words on iraq? barack obama has 16 words he needs to answer for. if you like your health care plan, you will be able to keep your health care plan. those 16 words, he lied us into obama care. >> you feel this was no accident? i know you believe it was a lie. >> yes. >> you believe it was intentional, designed because they knew all along that this is going to happen in the market and they needed it. >> absolutely. he almost admitted it. he said today, quote, if you are getting one of the letters, cancellation letters, just join obama care. first of all, you can't because the website doesn't work. if you could, that was their plan all along. the pro
